Last weekend , once again I was stewarding for the Faversham Society's 'Open House' scheme, this year at the Ship Hotel in the Market Place. It's greatest days were in the late 18th and early 19th Century as a coaching inn ( John Wesley and Charles Dickens stayed there) although it dates from c. 15th century. It closed as a pub in the early 1990's after a serious fire and the present owners have done a wonderful sympathetic modernisation of 2 apartments. There were great views from what would have been the meeting/ auction/ function room over the marketplace ( above).
My main job was to warn visitors about the odd steps and uneven floor surfaces, particularly as they came up the stairs

Magna Carta! ) I finished off at the Old Pharmacy Courtyard which I stewarded last year. I still love all those wonky lines and the feeling of walking back into Shakespeare's time.
